Adding gutters

In the process of adding gutters to our 2016 Challenger 37 KT. Pretty straightforward. Except working around the toppers and awnings on the passenger side. Any suggestions appreciated.

Need two or three people to help. One on a ladder on the side, two on top.
Fun!

I tried EZE gutters once. Didn't work very well. Anything more than a light rain would overflow the gutter and run down the side wall. I did use a length above the windshield that helps keep run off coming off the front cap and helps keep the glass a bit cleaner.

Got lucky and found a local RV dealer that had a supplier that would sell gutters individually rather than by the lot. The boas was they would also cut the standard 16' lengths in half to save on shipping. 16' has to go freight due to the size. One of the better upgrades I made. No more sidewall stains from run off.

Have 25 feet of this sitting in the garage and ready to install but was hesitanting due to not knowing how to install the plastic gutters. Is there any way to take a close up or discription of this area... and the gutter ends you used .
